With Glenn on vacation for the holidays, we’re counting down the top Glenn moments of 2012. What were this year’s highlights? Stay tuned to the Glenn Beck newsletter to find out!
The top Glenn moment of 2012 will be revealed Monday!
I am a Man
Labor Secretary Hilda Solis stirred controversy after her department proposed controversial labor laws aimed at America’s farms. The new regulations would severely restrict what work teenagers could do around the family farm – and as any farmer knows it’s a family business. This regulation is typical of what the Obama administration has done so far, but for Glenn this particular one proved to be the straw that broke the camel’s back. He unleashed arguably his most passionate monologue of the year during which he declared “I am a man and I demand to be treated as a man. I make my own choices and I live with the consequences of those choices. I do not answer to the federal government. That’s not how it works” he argued. Glenn called this just another attempt by the government to ‘co-parent’ that will only serve to rob youngsters of valuable life lessons. This monologue was classic Glenn Beck at his best – speaking truth from the heart.
Glenn calls out Chief Justice Roberts for upholding Obamacare
In a year full of shocking news stories, nothing took America closer to fundamental transformation more than the Supreme Court of the United States upholding Obamacare as constitutional. By referring to the individual mandate as a tax, the so-called “conservative” Chief Justice Roberts cemented the cornerstone of Obama’s progressive first term agenda as law. Glenn was shocked – but rather than wallow in despair, Glenn rode out that night on a horse (seriously), brandishing a sword and warned the “Coward” Justice Roberts and the President that they had woken a sleeping giant in America. Just a few days later, Glenn took the extreme step of actually demonstrating, on a live pretend human being, what medicine will look like under Obamacare in the near future. The country may be heading for trouble next year as Obamacare begins to be implemented, but you can always count on Glenn to find a way to keep entertaining in the worse possible situations.
